Why use royalty free music?
When making your own cinémathèque or creating a video for YouTube or Facebook posting, you must add a little arrière-plan music. Be careful emboîture the music you choose – YouTube and Facebook may take down your videos for copieuse infringement
This happened to me when I made a memorial video that was posted on Facebook. Somehow they ‘know’ that the music I’m using is copyrighted. They were not allowed to remain in réserve. I solved the problem by finding royalty free music on the web. I was able to use this music by adding a credit at the end of the video. As with everything else, it was a learning curve finding this ‘notoire domain’ music and then sifting through the plethora of crap that was available.
It’s hard to find music that you don’t have to pay royalties to use. Many sites offer this bonhomme of music, the problem is that they offer quantity over quality. Most sites are hard to navigate and the music is cheesy. Worse, some clash an upfront fee to download their songs. You can find free quality music out there but every cinémathèque project is égoïste, so is the music. Finding music that matches your phantasme can be time-consuming.
Royalty free music can take a lot of hassle out of creating your videos. You might not get pinged immediately, but chances are, if you’re using copyrighted material, someone will find out and insist that you ‘cease and desist’. For the average Joe out there, a Creative Commons license is perfect for getting music without paying licensing fees.
For corporations and businesses that want the défense of a license, a courant license, available for a small fee of $25, allows you to use a song as telephone hold music, ondes commercials or corporate intros where you don’t want or can’t give proper credit in writing. Why hire someone to write music or pay royalties if your recette doesn’t allow it?
I recommend finding a website that is set up in different categories to help you quickly navigate to the music you want. Choose a music calibre like hard rock or folk or orchestral. It’s much easier to sample and download songs from there or just read the flottant allégorie below each song to get a quick ‘feel’ for what might work for you. Some sites even provide a picture for a ‘visual representation’ of each song.
Another nice feature is songs that have oral and non-vocal versions. One of the advantages of having both versions of a song is that you can pratique them throughout your cinémathèque and use them as a recurring theme without repeating the same thing over and over and sounding monotonous.
For those who want a completely principe soundtrack, many sites offer music fonctions like classement writing and soundtrack editing to make your movie one-of-a-kind.
One hautain thing to remember when searching for your music – be specific. “Royalty Free Capacité Music” will give better results than “Royalty Free Music” alone.
